The upcoming F4 would be sub ecstasy man, picture that 5'8' tall beast in your living room! biggrin.gif

I wonder if the HP Plus (master) could be paired with an F2 (slave), or vice versa.

What ever subs I end up getting I'll let you know. And next time you visit here hit me up. We can make sample runs with movie clips and music with my setup..

Nice!, I was in and out of Honolulu all week. Stayed up in Punalu'u. Spent time on north shore snorkeling, swimming, a few Maker's Mark and Pepsi's. seen a 5ft reef shark on Lainiaki (spelling) beach. Anyway, I'll look ya up if I come back. I'll check with my brothers adoptive dad. He moved to Kona. Moved his jeep, Harley and other stuff. I'll ask what the best way is smile.gif

There's quite a few Submersive owners in far-flung corners of the planet, judging by this thread anyway. Mark despatched my pair of F2s to the UK for a reasonable price via Fedex. Now I am a mere 3,965 miles from Chicago and Honolulu is about 4,230 miles from Chicago - but that isn't a huge difference so I'd say it was do-able. And so, so worth it!

Nice Keith! So have you entertained any trade in for the F2+ at all? You could do 4 locations all around you! Remember your sig, "you can never have too much woofage!"

Hey - I’d love to!  The problem isn't one of too much woofage in my tiny HT - it's one of physically fitting in any more speakers. I really can't - there just ain't anywhere for them to go. If I had room, I would be considering another pair of F2s - upgrading the amps in this pair and then going with slaves for the other pair. I'd love to do that. One day maybe, if I get a bigger room. It is definitely true - you can never have too much woofage - or at least not when the woofage has the Seaton signature on it!

LOL. Believe me, if I could, I would. It really is a small room. When I lived in the States, I actually had a walk-in closet off the master bedroom that was bigger than my HT is now! The thing that amazes me is that the SQ is so sensational despite the limitations of the room. It is treated to hell though. Calibrated via REW and XT32. And I have a 92 inch screen and PJ, so the PQ is pretty good as well. Room is painted dark gray - just two recliners, but it is very 'cinema-like'. Sitting just 8.5ft from a 92 inch screen is cool :)

 

Sorry for going OT - to bring it back a little, one of the very best features of the room is the deep, clean, loud, tight bass, courtesy of Mr Seaton's Sensational Submersives.

I don't know that you were going OT - you were describing the environment for the SubM's.

No worries. It's good to be not super legalistic on these threads. Actually dual Submersives in your room is prob like 4 in a normal size room. I too will be going for a smaller type room down the road simply for bass response, room pressurization, etc. maybe 4-6 seats max. I may still end up going JTR subs though. At least I have definitive advertising numbers and some 100+ db graphs run by Jeff. I know Submersives are good but I don't understand why I can't get some definitive numbers when asked

Thanks... I'm hoping to make the right decision on my sub hunt. This probably be my last upgrade on the audio portion of my system for a long while. Shipping heavy equipment across the pacific gets costly. And it's not that easy for me to use it and decide " hmm, not happy with it! Oh we'll, I got a 30 day return policy on it. I'll just send it back!"... Lol. You know what I mean..

What numbers are you looking for?  I've always found Mark very open in the way he reveals information about the SubMs, but I don't know what it is you were after. I often find speaker manufacturers' figures to be fairly useless for me - the speakers always perform very differently once in a room, and of course every darn room is different.

 

I know very little about the JTRs other than they are well-regarded. And I have never heard them of course (here in the UK we have nowhere near the subwoofer choice (at the quality end) that you guys in the US have. Only comment I can make is that I will not be 'upgrading' my subs again, ever. (Unless I get a room where I can use another pair of SubMs course - woot!).

I would like to see a graph just like these JTR's. max spl, -3db point, driver xmax numbers. Rooms are all different yes but an outdoor measurement graphs gives us a great starting point

Yea I know.. but it has to be duals of what subs I decide now. Because if I just get one and later on I want the other wifey will definitely change her mind about getting the 2nd one. So while its approve for duals. I gotta get the duals.. lol

There is a post on Mark's Forum from Kris Deering. He said that he is hosting a meet (Seattle, WA) I also believe Mark said that he would attend.
Here is a link where Kris is giving praise to the subs: http://www.seaton-sound-forum.com/post/show_single_post?pid=1278955824&postcount=22
Link changed to show Mark's comments.

When will the F4 be released? Anyone know any specs on it?

Please excuse my descent from the topic being discussed right now, but I saw Mark mention the HPi amps? Have these been released?!

From Mark's forum: http://www.seaton-sound-forum.com/post/show_single_post?pid=1278948459&postcount=19 
I believe that he said somewhere that these could be used either by themselves or later a slave could be added, if desired.
Actually I would recommend reading the whole SubM+ thread: http://www.seaton-sound-forum.com/post/SubMersive-HP-amp-F2-masterslave-option-6453864

Thanks a lot mate!
Still waiting for the upgrade to HPi pricing.

Thanks for the links

+1? Seriously? I was making a comparison that those two JTR subs have graph measurements and that I would like to see the same on the SubMersive! The visual is a comparison of me saying why can't I see a simple graph, and be given the max output spl, -3db point and driver xmax numbers. So lets not bandwagon +1's and perhaps make an effort to interpret what I am trying to say/ask. I am seriously considering the Orbit Shifter and the Cap S2. But I would squeeze up to a master slave combo given the 2 enclosure capabilities of better room response. But I would like to know some performance numbers. So yes I am well aware this is the SUBMERSIVE forum and I will ask questions regarding the submersive and comparable subwoofers on the market I am considering. Good day mad.gif

Why is it a problem for me to compare all options I am considering? And so what if that includes a visual graph of the OS response. I would like to see the same for the SubMersive. I am only 8 months old in this hobby so if I am massively missing the point somewhere can someone please explain why some of you get so defensive for Seaton when numbers are asked? I would really like to buy Seaton as Mark and his products seem top notch
